Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) | [Mindy Kaling]

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Mindy Kaling is very, very funny, and I loved hearing her take on her life and experiences. Is it the best book I've ever read? No, but it's a delightful audiobook, and I embarrassed myself while running with my dog and listening to it.

    "Very Enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this book to certain friends because some of Mindy's experiences are very relatable and recognizable.


    Any additional comments?

    As a 30 year old woman, Mindy's stories were relatable and funny. I found the flow to be a little random sometimes; she jumped around to different topics quite abruptly. She also has a lot of lists. Some people might find this irritating but I thought most of them were pretty funny.
    For the most part, I enjoyed Mindy's perspective and experiences and think she's a funny, talented lady!

    Story
    "Spritely and funny but lacks focus"

    This book was funny. Mindy Kaling is intelligent and has a quirky sense of humor that is all over the map. However, this proves to be a double edged sword for her book. It just lacks a consistent stream of thought to keep me reading and come back to the book after I had to stop it.

    A fun read but a little slim for the credit and while it's similar to Tina Fey's book, it's just not the same caliber.

    Great read. Kaling is funny and witty. A lot like Tina Fey's Bossy Pants.

    High! It was great to hear Mindy reading this, it added so much to the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listened to this to and from work, and I hated to get out of the car. I would laugh out loud by myself in my car. The other drivers must have thought I was nuts.

    Story
    "Fun and Delightful"
    Where does Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Well, as far as fun memoir types of books this ranks pretty high.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed Mindy's story because she is fun to listen to. I have watched The Office for years and it was great to hear how she ended up there. I am also from the Boston area and it makes me feel more ambitious to hear successful stories about people close to me in age that grew up in this area of the country. I loved her honesty, wit and unapologetic sense of self.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say there were many scenes i loved but especially found it funny when she ran out of work after taking a comment too personally and came back without letting anyone know she had left. I have definitely done this and could relate. I laughed out loud a lot.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    On one point I was slightly disappointed and that would be that Mindy does not understand John Cougar Mellencamp. Mindy if you read this, Jack and Diane is not a high school fantasy of jocks and cheerleaders getting it on after school,it is a gritty story about a mixed race high school relationship. Actually most of JCM songs are about racial tensions. Not trying to be annoying, just thought you would want to know.

    Story
    "Funny, Witty and Relatable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Mindy was extremely entertaining, and I found myself able to relate to many of her stories! Despite the sometimes frequent name-dropping, I found the book incredibly enjoyable to listen to, and will likely do a second listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book can be easily enjoyed in one sitting, but can also be easily broken into smaller digestible parts, nice for a short commute to work.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to be better than the print version?

    A little bit because of the pictures in the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mindy tells a refreshingly smart and funny story. It is almost as if the reader and her are having a conversation.


    What does Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Voice and mood.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there will be a second book!
